WHOLESOME MEAL IDEAS FOR RAMADAN – SUHOOR MEAL

Today’s Post is all about SUHOOR MEAL ideas for RAMADAN.

RAMADAN MUBARAK to all my Muslim friends all over the world.

10 more days till RAMADAN!

With RAMADAN 2017 being only 1o Days away, I am sure we are all searching for Ideas and Recipes to plan our Meals ahead of time!

Especially SUHOOR (night meal before dawn)

Suhoor is the most important part of Ramadan for me. It should be for everyone else too! In Canada, we will be having a 17-Hour long Fast. Yes, Our days in the summers are extremely long. More than half of the 24 hour day is within daytime!

For that reason, a wholesome and nutritious Suhoor is very important.

As the saying goes, “breakfast is the most important meal of the day” and during Ramadan, it becomes even more relevant with Suhoor. With the long fasting days ahead, it’s the perfect time to embrace a wholesome, fulfilling set of meals that are quick to make and will keep you going for a long while!

Breakfast is my favorite part of the day and I am a believer of feeding your body everything good so that it can work at an optimum level, just the way our Beloved Creator has designed for it too.

Here’s a list of my favorite recipes with tiny variations to keep you full for a long time.:

Oats

Oatmeal is very high in Protein and low in calories. As you all know, a protein filled meal is sure to keep you feeling fuller and energetic longer. 

Oats are packed with important vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. 

I personally love oats because there’s so much you can do with it! 

The two below are my staple ones!

I go with one cup of rolled oats for myself, however, feel free to experiment with the quantities that may work for you!

A Fruity Bowl of Goodness

  • One cup of natural rolled oats
  • 1 & ½ cup of milk OR half part milk
  • half part water

I like to add some cinnamon as it cooks to a thick mixture and it enhances the flavors! (approximately after 3-4 minutes)

Turmeric Oats ( YES YOU READ THAT RIGHT!)

  • 1 cup of natural rolled oats
  • 1 & ½ cup of milk OR half part milk
  • Half part water

Let it cook and thicken for approximately 3-4 minutes
I add a ¼ teaspoon of turmeric as its thickening and other times after I pour the oats into a bowl.

I suggest adding a little at a time as turmeric is an acquired taste.

THAT’S IT!

Now you can add the toppings of your choice.

Turmeric is a Gut healing Ingredient along with endless health benefits. It cleanses the blood, it helps relieve arthritis and joint pains. It releases the toxins from the body in a gentle way and heals the gut/digestive system. 

 

TOPPING SUGGESTIONS:

I usually have almost everything in this list but you can have anything you like, really.

I am a massive fan of superfood ingredients such as Chia Seeds, Flaxseeds, Goji Berries etc. These superfood toppings will make a difference in boosting nutrition!

Fresh Toppings:

Strawberries, blueberries, apples, kiwi, sliced bananas, a spoonful of peanut butter, cacao nibs, walnuts, almonds, shredded coconut, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, flaxseeds, chia seeds and finally a drizzle of pure honey over the top.

Overnight oats are a great alternative to these recipes as well.

Put all the ingredients together in a bowl, jar or container and leave them in the fridge until the next morning.

Until then, it’ll be ready to eat!
